May 20, 2020
Across the world, stories of dogs helping people fighting the coronavirus pandemic have emerged.
Only the other day, Benji, a 4-year-old Bernedoodle was seen in a video, that went viral, rollerblading on its owner Andrew Laske’s back.
The 70-pound canine has been spotted skiing, off-roading and even kayaking.
“This dude has seen a lot, he’s helped a lot and he’s made a lot of people smile,” Laske said. “Obviously, he’s my best friend.”
Benji is a therapy dog that has put its best paw forward with a virtual fundraiser and online hospital visits amid Covid-19.
The pooch helps people at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), but during the coronavirus pandemic, he and his owner have had to get creative to connect with the kids.
Benji is an adorable and very talented dog whose tricks have made him a viral sensation with an estimated 20 million views.
The Bernedoodle is raising money on Saturday for CHLA’s Walk and Play LA, which has now become a virtual fundraiser to benefit all programmes.
Between the therapy visits and now viral videos, Laske and Benji are trying to bring a little positivity with every post, like and share during an otherwise hectic times in our lives.
